CiVICRM for Indian Political Party

An Indian Political Party

The organization is a Indian political party. On front end they did not have a right, scalable CMS and backend No CRM. They were running multiple sites like one for news other for blogs other one for members etc.  They had scattered data of their members, donors and volunteers in different database one for each state chaptors. The central administration never able to have full visibility of data and were not able to make right decisions related to election campaigns, Fundraising programs, membership signup and expiration etc.
 
There was a huge gap in the communication between member, donors, volunteers. There was no way to keep the track of internal communication using system. All use to be done manually. They were not having a tool to run proper election campaign and was seek a solution for election campaign also.      
 
We offered them the right Solution CIVICRM. Initially they were hesitant to take a open source solution but after demonstration and discussion with our CTO and Adaptive IT team, they decided to go ahead.

Functionality

The main concern of the organization was its inability to target its constituents, members, volunteers donors with newsletters and other communications and te scattered data. Most of the data was managed in excel sheets. They had no proper system to run election campaign, Fundraising campaign and evaluate effectiveness of campaigns.
 
CIVICRM solution that we offered improved functionality that allowed workers to better capture and manage member information. The solution also enabled the organization to track the activities of the constituents, including when donations were made, the political events a member wanted to attend, and the subscription lists a member wanted to belong to. 
 
In addition, CiviCRM offer a mailing and SMS feature improved ability to communicate quickly and effectively with its members, with reduction of man hours so increasing productivity
